Ivy Tech Community College renews in-state tuition agreement with Ohio colleges

INDIANAPOLIS – Two of Ivy Tech Community College’s 14 regions are part of the renewed Tuition Reciprocity Agreement with Ohio institutions of higher education.

The new agreement means that Ivy Tech’s East Central Region, which includes the campuses of Muncie, Marion and Anderson, as well as Ivy Tech’s Whitewater Region, which includes the campuses of Richmond and Connersville, will again be able to offer Ohio students in neighboring counties in-state tuition rates. The reciprocity agreement allows Indiana and Ohio colleges to expand postsecondary opportunities across state borders while limiting the cost to taxpayers.

Students from Butler, Darke, Mercer, Preble, Shelby and Van Wert counties in Ohio are eligible for the tuition reciprocity.

In addition, students living in Adams, Allen, Blackford, Clark, Dearborn, Decatur, Delaware, Fayette, Franklin, Henry, Jay, Jefferson, Jennings, Ohio, Randolph, Ripley, Rush, Scott, Switzerland, Union, Wayne and Wells counties in Indiana will be able to receive the in-state tuition rate at eligible Ohio institutions of higher education.

The reciprocity agreement is a collaboration among the institutions to create availability of programs on either side of the state border counties without duplicating education efforts and to most efficiently use educational facilities and resources.
